[PATCH 2/2] net: ethernet: davinci_emac: Fix platform_data overwrite

From: Neil Armstrong
Date: Wed Apr 20 2016 - 04:56:59 EST

When the DaVinci emac driver is removed and re-probed, the actual
pdev->dev.platform_data is populated with an unwanted valid pointer saved by
the previous davinci_emac_of_get_pdata() call, causing a kernel crash when
calling priv->int_disable() in emac_int_disable().

Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address c8622a80
